The Kidbrooke Village development, located in London’s popular Royal borough of Greenwich, has become an award winning development for Berkeley Homes and Barretts of Aspley have enjoyed a long standing relationship with the regeneration project; which now spans over 10 years. The 28 year development, which began in 2007, has created 8,000 jobs including 140 apprenticeships and has delivered over 1,000 homes. The former RAF base became the Ferrier Estate in 1968, it was then listed for development by Greenwich Council in 2001 and is now home to a thriving regeneration with a bright future ahead.
Barretts of Aspley were once again selected to provide the architectural metalwork’s package for Block B/Phase 2 of Kidbrooke Village, being able to deliver consistent quality to the first class development over such a large time frame was the catalyst providing the opportunity to renew the working relationship. A high production capacity and a proven installation capability was key to delivering the scope of works at Kidbrooke Block B, with over 130 new housing units being developed featuring prominent metalwork’s throughout. On site co-ordination with a multitude of trades was required to guarantee precise manufacture timescales to meet the installation deadlines, and by working closely with the client using our experience of previous phases at the development, we were able to assist with installation methods and facilitate a smooth build process for all involved.
